axle conversion questions

I am going to an axle conversion on my `86 Bronco II. (D44 in front and 9" in the rear) My questions are this.
1. I plan on going with 35" after the convversion will my stock steering box and pump hold up or do I need to replace it with one from a F150 or Bronco?

2. For the front coils, do I use Bronco coils or Bronco II coils? Same for the rear, Bronco or Bronco II leafs?

3. For the rear axle, can I cut off existing pertches and shock mounts and just relocate them or do I need to get new ones?

4. And my final. Is it better for me to goto a pull-it yard and get these axles and just rebuild them myself (take them to a shop and have the pinion angles set) or do I need to buy the axle's already rebuilt? Also what is the bolt pattern? I plan on useing axles from a `76-77 bronco so that I will have front disks.
